Apple falls during WWDC as Reuters reports DOJ given jurisdiction for probe

A part of a broad tech review among antitrust enforcement agencies, the Department of Justice has been given jurisdiction over Apple (AAPL), Reuters reported, citing sources. The Federal Trade Commission intends to open an antitrust probe into Facebook (FB) under an arrangement that gives the Justice Department chief oversight of Alphabet's (GOOG) Google, The Wall Street Journal reported earlier today. Following the Reuters headlines, shares of Apple are down roughly 2% while the tech giant is conducting its Annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

Outperform
China trade damage could result in lower Apple earnings, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Krish Sankar assessed the potential damage to Apple's earnings from the China trade war. He estimates a 5%-30% unit demand destruction across all hardware sales could impact earnings by 1%-8%. The analyst said in the case of a 100% demand destruction, meaning the iPhones is banned in China, he estimates a roughly 26% impact to FY20 earnings. Sankar maintained his Outperform rating and $245 price target on Apple shares.

Overweight
Apple price target lowered to $231 from $240 at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty lowered her price target on Apple shares to $231 from $240 to reflect peer multiple contraction given the risk of further restrictive trade measures, though she has not changed her estimates. She has been forecasting 37M iPhone shipments in the June quarter, but if she assumes Chinese demand significantly weakens and iPhone shipments fall 50% year-over-year, than she would expect 2.3M lower iPhone units, $1.6B lower revenue and a 5c impact to EPS, with all else being equal, Huberty tells investors. She sees the greatest near-term risk to Apple being that Chinese consumers meaningfully slow their purchases of Apple products, which would likely cause another round of estimate cuts. However, in the event the U.S. places a 25% tax on all Chinese imports to the U.S. with no exclusions, Huberty said she sees 19-23% downside to Apple's FY20 EPS. The analyst, who sees the "near-term floor" for Apple shares being around $160, keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

Strong Buy
Apple weakness on China tensions 'major buy opportunity', says Tigress Financial
Tigress Financial analyst Ivan Feinseth kept his Strong Buy rating on Apple, saying the recent weakness in its shares on U.S.-China trade-related weakness is a "major buying opportunity." The analyst says Apple continues to create value from its ecosystem through its Services business as it becomes a source of revenue growth and "further monetizes" the company's 1B iPhone user base. Feinseth also cites the company's "focus on healthcare services", which Apple CEO Cook expects to be the company's "long-lasting legacy." Moreover, the analyst points to Apple's development of new AI technologies along with AR/VR capabilities to be used in its current and future products.

Piper survey shows 'surprisingly high amount of interest' in 5G iPhones
Apple will likely ship 5G iPhones in the second half of 2020, and while still early to be talking about the devices, the 5G iPhone's "integration into the investor narrative" around Apple shares has already begun, Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson tells investors in a research note. The analyst's survey of over 1,000 U.S. iPhone owners shows that nearly 20% are interested in purchasing a 5G iPhone. This is a "surprisingly high amount of interest" given limited 5G marketing to date and the high price point, says Olson. He believes interest in 5G "will only grow from here." While the analyst thinks excitement around this year's iPhones will be limited, he believes that as long as Apple's services revenue continues to perform well, it will "tide many investors over" until anticipation for 5G iPhones intensifies. He maintains an Overweight rating on Apple shares with a $230 price target. The stock closed Friday down $3.23 to $175.07.

DOJ's Google probe could embolden critics of tech giants, says BofA/Merrill
After the Wall Street Journal reported late Friday that the U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to open an investigation into Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) compliance with antitrust laws, BofA/Merrill analyst Justin Post said that while FTC commissioners have voted in the past not to pursue a lawsuit and possible breakup of Google, the current climate "is somewhat different." In a research note to investors, Post says antitrust probes are "difficult to predict," and that if the DOJ moves ahead, an investigation would likely embolden critics of Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and other tech giants as well, causing rhetoric to heat up during the 2020 election year. Potential implications for Google could include new regulations on business practices or an antitrust investigation leading to a breakup, but to break up Google, the DOJ would likely have to file a lawsuit and convince judges that Google has undermined competition. Post has a Buy rating and $1,350 price target on shares of Google parent Alphabet.

Cray downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Chad Bennett downgraded Cray (CRAY) to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target on the shares to $35 from $36 after HP Enterprise (HPE) announced that it has entered into an agreement to purchase the company for $35.00 per share in cash, totaling $1.3B net of cash. The analyst believes the possibility of another buyer coming in over the top is fairly low, but notes that the price is "too low" based on the opportunities Cray has in front of it over the next few years. Furthermore, Bennett believes there would be a number of interested parties in Cray including Microsoft (MSFT), Dell (DELL), Intel (INTC), Alphabet (GOOG), Amazon (AMZN), and potentially IBM (IBM).
